The Civil War in France is a principal source for understanding Marx's theory of communism and is an official statement of the General Council of the International on the character and significance of the struggle of the Parisian Communards in the French Civil War of 1871. Using the history of the Paris Commune, Marx reviewed the significance of some of his own earlier writings. Following the publication of the title, Marx once said in a later preface to the Communist Manifesto that "no special stress is laid on the revolutionary measures proposed at the end of Section II. That passage would, in many respects, be very differently worded today."  He also pointed that "One thing especially was proved by the Commune, viz., that 'the working class cannot simply lay hold of ready-made state machinery, and wield it for its own purposes.'"

Marxists highly praised the book as one of the most profound and most brilliant monographs by Karl Marx. This is a must-read book to understand the foundational thought of a communist party and the nature of a socialistic country by Karl Marx.
